# How do you write y + 1/3x = 4 into slope intercept form?

Aug 11, 2015

$y = - \frac{1}{3} x + 4$

#### Explanation:

Slope intercept form can be represented as $y = m x + b$
To get an equation into this form, we should try to get $y$ all alone.

From $y + \frac{1}{3} x = 4$
we can subtract $\frac{1}{3} x$ from both sides
to get $\implies y = - \frac{1}{3} x + 4$
which is now in slope intercept form :)
